A Classics-style updating of the face. Looks like the front half of his gun rotates, probably so that one tab can tab into the side of his alt-mode.
I agree with every statement. I truly hope they pull a Mech Ideas for the fans on this and release this set at a golden price where these would sell in large quantities. I mean if they hit a 70 or less price point with these I don't think there is a single person on this forum that would pass on them

$60 would be the magic number I'd think, shaving $10 off the larger Demo Crue, but $70 would be a big draw as well, as they're pretty popular characters and still in the IDW spotlight (well, Gears is just background, but Swerve more than makes up for his lack of visibility) compared to the dearly departed Topspin & Twintwist.

Plus they look so damn good!

This is a set.... So, your $60 is basically $120.

I want these bad. I agree with slim maximus, $70 or under and I'm sold. I think that's a fair price even though I don't know what goes into deciding the final price. But from a constant buyer of third party figures I'm used to the astronomical prices so well see.

This Is third party.. We will be lucky if the price tag is at 90 for these... Not saying I'm not wishing for a low price too...

We are referring to a set price not individual prices. The Demo Crew was $65/70 depending when and where you got it, for 2 bots. That is what we are suggesting that this box set be $70 or less not $70 or less for each figure. If this set breaks $80 they are going to lose a lot of potential buyers imo. I know I'm out if it goes that high

Damn it every time I see this thread bumped I'm hoping it's to notify us of preorders.... And btw it's going to be $80 is my guess

If the quality is amazing, I could go $80 for the pair. I can't justify any more than that for such small figures.

......Aaannd...STILL no pre-orders.

( I feel like I've made this post already. )

Hey Daimchoc, any word ? They have: finished product just ready to go, they have multiple galleries displaying these guys, and they have a good chunk of the fandom fighting over the up-coming speculated price...

What more do they want..., a haiku, a written love letter...(sigh).







...Dear Make Toys...You make me feel...
